The Guardian’s Playlist

It’s a rare thing these days when I pick up something at a convention, tuck it into my backpack, take it home and finally find the time to read it simply to fall in love with it. When I met the author at Wizard World – Ohio, I thought she was this fantastic woman with the right convention attitude and I had hopes that she would do well that weekend. Her son made me laugh and I thought they made a fantastic pairing and it was pretty great to see them sharing the convention scene. However, like so many things I pick up, I didn’t put much hope in the book wow’ing me. Before I go on and tell you just how wrong I was, let me show you the back cover of the book so you can see what the book is about:

Banners On The Cheap Review & Giveaway!

When we were approached about doing a review for Banners on the Cheap, I wasn’t quite sure if we should take it or not. Then, I realized that our very own staff members may be able to handle this! Sure enough, Ross stepped up to the plate and used the gift card that we were offered to get the banner that you see over there on the left. Before we get to the giveaway, let’s hear what he has to say about his experience:

My experience ordering a printed banner from BannersOnTheCheap.com has been nothing less than exemplary so far. I have yet to use a promotional printing service that was not only this user-friendly, but expedient with my order and willing to answer any questions.  (Granted, I didn’t have any questions thanks to their process.)

I ordered my vertical 8′ x 3′ banner in early J...
